Normally I would completely agree with you.  However I'm not running 
milter-spamc.  Rather I'm running spamass-milter (comes with 
SpamAssassin) as at the time that I set it up, milter-spamc did not pull 
settings from a (SQL) database rather from settings in home directories. 
  Seeing as how we were (are) filtering for some domains that are 
relayed through are server and thus no local delivery I had to have a 
way to set values somewhere not dependent on a home directory.

SpamAss-milter will however choose to use either the individual 
recipient's settings or the (configured) ""default users settings if 
there is more than one SMTP envelope recipient.  So it's not really 
SpamAssassin that is seeing the additional recipient but rather 
spamass-milter that is handing a different user off to SpamAssassin 
based on the number of envelope recipients.
